We consider ourselves lucky to have so many creative friends. So when it came to photographing the wedding, we thought, that rather than go through the hassle of posing for all those canned wedding shots, we’d ask our photographer friends to let loose and capture the day.
We’re going to share a couple of galleries from two of the photographers whom we adore. The first, whom you all know and love as the photographer of the Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook, is Paulette Tavormina. We’ve been so fortunate to have her as a friend and collaborator. She’s an incredible fine art photographer whose work hangs in the greatest galleries around the world. Seriously…check out her “Natura Morta” photographs. They’re brilliant. We had to beg and cajole her into shooting our cookbooks, which she turns into works of art on their own. She caught some beautiful details of our wedding picnic. Thank you, Paulette…
This next photo gallery is from a young man who reached out to us just this past spring. He’s just beginning his career in photography, and has a true passion for it. You know, it takes a certain amount of guts and determination for a kid to contact us from out of the blue, and ask if he can shoot something.
We happen to really like guts and determination. We also happen to like talent and potential. And Kobey has loads of it. So that’s why we asked Kobey Lawton, who’s just out of high school, to be the Official Food Photographer of our wedding. He did an incredible job, and we’ll be sharing all of his food shots, as well as all of the recipes from the day’s dishes in another post. But below are some of the other general shots he captured from the day. If you live in our region, you definitely should look up Kobey to shoot your event. Get him before he’s too famous.
